COMPENDIUM is an exploration of the contemporary abstract movement post graffiti. Utilizing blends of color, line work, and space as subjects, each artist’s unique approach to their work is weighted in the individualism and self-determination that graffiti culture fosters. COMPENDIUM’s roster highlights an eclectic blend of local, national and international artists all communicating through the visual language known as abstract art.
Really excited to be part of this exhibition, which is opening this week at Saatchi gallery in London. For this occasion I prepared a few new paintings I’m super pleased with. Please message me if you’d like to attend the private view this Thursday.
Altered States showcases works by eight urban contemporary artists based in the UK. The artists featured in Altered States are: D.A.N.T.E., David Shillinglaw, Florence Blanchard, Kid Acne, Lily Mixe, Skeleton Cardboard, Sr.X and Victoria Villasana. The exhibition has been curated by Olly Walker.
By its nature art concerns transition and transformation. Ideas and emotions transform from impulses to physical images. Substances are transformed when rendered on surfaces, liquids become solids and colours merge. Similarly, artists find themselves living within a society that is constantly changing and presenting them with new challenges and opportunities.
The UK is home to a community of diverse artists. Some were borne in the UK and others were drawn to it; but all continue to explore artistic ideas as the nation evolves. Altered States showcases the output of a selection of British-based urban contemporary artists working today.
